The Libertarian Party of Michigan was founded in June 1972. Its first state chair was Stuart Weiner, who was soon succeeded by either Jeffery Doan or founding vice chair Bill Krebaum. Weiner and Doan were both students at the University of Michigan.


The Defender of Liberty Awards, also known as Libbies, are given every year at the banquet to a maximum of four recipients. These recipients are determined to have acted in the defense of liberty and may or may not even be in the Libertarian Party.
